It has been hard to hold my opinions to myself watching the day-in-day-out news cycle. I am a conservative independent, voting for both parties. This, to me, means I prefer making my own decisions and not having to rely on government.

Congressman John Moolenaar, R-Midland, I have questions — not about the impeachment of President Donald Trump; I know all of your voting records and while I often don’t agree with you, I trust that your votes align with what you believe is best for your constituents.

To the person who picked up my Rainex wiper blades I accidentally left in my shopping cart at Meijer in Corunna on Friday, I drove back to the store expecting them to still be on the cart, but no they were gone.

Regarding letter Sunday stating President Donald Trump “shares blame” for the downing of the Ukrainian airliner shot down by Iran’s military, the writer’s opinion is so filled with errors I could not ignore them, as I normally do.

There is now an emerging debate on the following: Did Trump’s decision to assassinate the Iranian general result in the unintended consequence of Iran’s downing of a Ukrainian civilian airliner? Let’s look at the facts.

As far as Iran is concerned, I think the American people owe the Iranian people an apology for our government’s help in bringing down the first democratically elected government in the Middle East in the 1950’s. The American CIA, British MI6 and other intelligence personnel joined together a…

As a corn farmer, I am concerned about the future of rural Michigan, including my farm. During the campaign trail, we heard President Trump’s promises to support farmers; however, his actions in Washington, D.C. do not match his words on the campaign.

In 2016, Donald Trump campaigned on a promise to get us out of the Middle East. During his first year in office, he withdrew from a carefully negotiated plan which had successfully kept Iran from developing nuclear weapons — and would have continued to do so for more than a decade. He compla…

Hearing about the extreme criticism of the president’s decision to take out the Iranian (Gen. Qasem Soleimani), as a “nonogenaian” I recall clearly the noon hour of Monday, Dec. 8, 1941 — 24 hours after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor.

Shame on you, Democratic National Party. It is becoming more evident only two weeks after your impeachment that your efforts turned out to be totally worthless.

The ability to request investigation cooperation is an active treaty that was done while Bill Clinton was president, “Mutual Cooperation Agreement 116-16,” saying either country (U.S. or Ukraine) could ask assistance in regard to whatever possible criminal activity is being investigated.

This year, Michigan’s first cold spell hit in mid-October. Certain things can be expected in an old farmhouse when winter moves in and, while cooking supper, one of them arrived in the form of a wee mousie skittering across the kitchen floor with my kitty, Orca, in hot pursuit.

I simply cannot believe a recent writer and far too many other Republicans are supporting President Donald Trump after his sociopathic attack on a disabled reporter and others at campaign rallies around the country during his run for the presidency.

I noticed a recent letter writer didn’t argue whether President Donald Trump had committed obstruction of justice because we all know there is no doubt about that.
